A bit pricey and filled with kids from 5:00-7:00, but other than that it always exceeds our expectations. Good food, prepared well and great service. If you can get in the bar area, especially in cold weather when the fireplace is blazing, get in there-very...More

Homemade tortillas and fresh salsa. Very good. I think, however, they emphasize their "organic" meat a bit too much. The food was ok but have had better Mexican food in many other places. My quesadilla was deep fried--a bit strange. The service was excellent and...More

The staff at Boxcar Cantina were friendly and seated our party of six quickly. Our drinks were served quickly, as well. I had a frozen strawberry margarita - very good. For margaritas, they offer a bunch of different tequilas to choose from. The chips, salsa...More

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the food, but it's the staff that really makes it worth the effort to eat here. Basic Mexican fare served at a popular Greenwich restaurant results in a crowd...all the time. Definitely brave the crowd, find a parking spot, and...More

We have been enjoying this Restaurant for many years! Delicious house made chips, salsa and guacamole are the perfect accompaniments to their margaritas (made with fresh lime juice)! A cup of their soup Posole is truly a savory starter. Rich chicken stock, chunks of chicken...More

Went to Boxcar Cantina last night for the first time in a long time. The place looks the same but the food and overall value have gone down. Starting with the chips and salsa that used to be free (now $4.00). Portion sizes seem to...More

Boxcar Cantina offers excellent quality food and great drinks on a consistent basis. Service can be a bit erratic but the terrific jalapeño margaritas, excellent tacos and the awesome chorizo con queso greatly outweighs that shortcoming.

I went to Boxcar Cantina with a party of five others. Everyone was friendly, the atmosphere laid-back and warm. My black cherry margarita was excellent -- I recommend the frozen margaritas - you won't be disappointed. Chips and salsa tasted great, as well. Our waiter...More
